Caregiver Support Group

Connecting with other caregivers in caregiver support group meetings is an excellent way to acquire information, ideas and tips for caregiving. In addition, support group participants feel affirmed, renewed and re-energized after sharing their stories and hearing the stories of their fellow caregivers.

Holy Cross supports all and any caregivers through the support group meetings that are held each month. During the meetings, caregivers are given opportunities to share their stories, ask questions and feel affirmed for all they are doing in their journeys as a caregiver.

Meetings: Usually the 2nd Thursday of the month at 1:30pm in classroom J at Holy Cross

Do you see family/friend caregiving as a possibility in the near future? Are you just starting the caregiving journey? Have you been a caregiver for some time? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be wondering what resources are available to help you with your caregiving duties. Family/friend caregiving is a world unto itself. Those new to the caregiving world often don’t know where to start with locating resources. Those who are in the midst of 24/7 or near 24/7 caregiving rarely have the time it takes to do the necessary research to locate available resources.
